i like the classical and romantic periods the least, although i do like schumann a lot, his piano works in particular. i prefer early music and neue musik. minnesang, renaissance, baroque, expressionism, serialism, musique spectrale, musique concrète, minimalism etc. bach and vivaldi remain my absolute favourites, loved both as a kid already.

Ku-universal word for anything, but mostly used for "hi". From the soviet sci-fi comedy kin-dza-dza. Also can be used for emotional expression, sign of respect, pointing, swear word and pop songs.

Most of east Asia I would imagine from visiting Japan and Korea. Korea was even better to work in as a foreigner than as a local. I out earned my Korean colleagues by almost 2x their salary and had all my living expenses, save for electric and gas, covered by my employer.

Does Ernst follow any professionally played videogames? To what extend?
From time to time i like watching Quake Live and CS:GO but i don't think i'm interested enough to actually visit any events like many other people do.

Some news:
McDonalds ended it's sponsorship with the German Football Association and instead focuses on eSport now.

The Danish Prime Minister just opened a Counter-Strike event in Denmark with a short speech.

Every game that requires some amount of skill can be played professionally, the main difference i see between a fast paced shooter or chess is that chess is extremely boring to watch.

Another big difference is that the rules of chess are fixed and there is no corporation who's interested in turning a profit behind it

So there are no microtransactions, no straight-up and no under-handed P2W etc. There is lots of toxicity surrounding modern esports, naturally as lots of money is involved

That's no difference, that's the case in every competition in every game, be it chess, football or quake.
If you look up organizers of tournaments you also find rulebooks, be it chess, football or quake
Example:
https://gfx.esl.eu//media/eu/csgo/eslone/katowice2015/ESLOne_CSGO_Rulebook.pdf

>and there is no corporation who's interested in turning a profit behind it

And the price money of chess tournaments just happens to be there without any source?
If you look up different tournaments you find organizers and sponsors just like in every other game.

Regarding esports, I really enjoy watching SC:BW Remastered casts, especially by this charming fellow, FalconPaladin. At the moment this beats actually playing the game online for me. He casts top replays with all the big names, and makes this all into some really good time (damn I sometimes feel my English skills are rusty beyond repair and a grammar nazi would be a huge long-term benefit). There is also this Russian SC2 caster, Alex007sc2, his casts are extremely skilled, prime-time-MSM level works, however, he's casting SC2, to which I am quite foreign. Still incredibly fun to watch, so much tension and drama, it's the perfect spectator sport. I tried watching some SC:BW first-person VODs but almost caught epilepsy there, the speed is insane.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtdsmmGGEI0 for a quick link if anyone wants to check it out first-hand.
Sadly, I myself never broke the 85apm threshold. Even though Day9 made, like, an 100-hour long Let's Learn Starcraft videoguide, of which I only managed to watch maybe 7 or 10 hours.

I also want to strongly suggest that this is not the best imageboard for your thread. The match is wonky at best.

Instead, let's talk about what you define as miracle of the universe; it's a concept foreign to me and I am interested do know what you mean by it. Is a miracle by its own nature an unpredictable phenomenon? This would imply a non-deterministic universe. I have my own theories about how deterministic this universe is, but let's hear your thoughts on that first :3

The biggest miracle of the Universe is that it exists at all. How unlikely is it for something to be instead of not?

Well, if we're going approach it from an empirical perspective, a miracle is an event the cause of which is impossible to know. Which I think the mystery of creation is. Simply being unknowable puts it outside the scope of empiric knowledge and into philosophy/mysticism.

From a metaphysical perspective, there is no reason for anything to be rather than not to be. "Nothingness" is a false concept (as explained by parmenides), but that is an empirical reservation at its core: non-being is impossible simply because we happen to live in a reality that happened to Be rather than not be. WHY existence is the default rather than non-existence, I think we'll never get to know.

Orthodoxy was already dead by the time of revolution. People didn't believe in it and the original idea was long lost.
What many western people don't get about the soviet times that it was a form of anarchy. You could kill people you don't like by letter and take whatever you want by force. Stalin and lenin didn't list all people they want to kill by names or personally shooting at people. People did it to each other. The church was devastated by its own hands, property was taken from it because people wanted to. Religion was too corrupted already by 18 century.
I might agree that byzantine orthodoxy wasn't bad, there are many good ideas. But in here and Ukraine it was more of an national identity and in Russia church was more of a kid for tsars they didn't want to have.
Also Belarus isn't orthodox in a way like Russia. We had uniat church and our tradition still borrows a lot from paganism.

What do you think is a good philosophy that just simply accepts Man for how he is and actually accepts the world for what it is without actually imposing its own rules and laws and observations upon the observed? Do you think that there is any philosophy which is actually objectively truthful and neither attempts to change the nature of the Man or that envisions some "answer" like Salvation to the actual state of affairs, but quite simply observes the natural order of things without necessarily any judgment or cloudiness of vision from personal biases, assumptions, principles, and conclusions? Do you think such a thing is possible?

Do you think that there is any actual philosophy that truly can tell you not to change the nature of a man, or offers some utopian ideal or grim pessimism, but quite clearly sees things for how they are?

And yes I am aware of Sartre though admittedly don't actually know a whole lot about existentialist thought. And I don't just mean Mankind and the self centeredness of much philosophical conjecture but an accurate depiction of simply the world/universe/reality devoid of hopes expectations or fears, and quite simply in utter naked boldness declares "this is how things are" without biased flaws?

I'd say these are more questions of biological limits to perception than about philosophy?
You'd end with a machine or mechanism that counts all molecues, electrons, positrons, photons and writes a log about their positions in the universe at a given time if you want this kind of "objectivity".

Your best bet as a human for seing (at least some) things "as they are" is probably some form of meditative praxis.

>of there being a philosophy to follow
will you anglos ever learn what philosophy is? it is, like math, a SCIENCE. you can't "follow" "a math". neither can you "follow" "a philosophy". you may agree or disagree with statements and theories different philosophers have issued. however, the fact that individual philosophers also deal with matters within the usual domain(s) of religion and/or ideology doesn't mean that religious or ideological beliefs or politics become "a philosopy of x". philosophers are neither priests nor politicians nor yoga mentors. philosophers are scientists and philosophy itself is simply the most universal science. which does not, unlike other sciences, seek to assess, describe and predict rather specific sets of phenomena such as numbers, quantum mechanics or sociology, but basically everything. richard david precht said it basically links all sciences together - i do basically agree with this, however i'm more with the old greeks here, i'd describe it more as an umbrella for all sciences, in mathematical terms that would be a set of (yet?) unknown cardinality.
